Recently, a slew of brilliant one minute X-men First Class movie trailers came out, each focusing on a character in the movie. This was brilliant because while the X-men have their story, each character, of course, has his/her own story, struggling for acceptance, identity and place in a society that generally rejects them. You will struggle to find a good movie with so many individual story lines and strong characters. Even the minor characters have a whole history behind them that is intriguing because they have those elements of epic struggles for acceptance, identity and place to their character!

With the Prince William to Kate Middleton royal wedding now over with, the next real big British royalty moment everyone is looking forward to could well be the birth of their first child and the yet next heir to the British throne. Sure, Prince Harry’s wedding would be a big event. Phillip and the Queen are both getting on in years so they may pass, which would also be a big event. Charles may divorce again, too, and Fate may throw in a twist here and there. However, the real big event everyone would be looking forward to would be the birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first child.

So how long should they wait?

X-men First Class: Are You Ready?

June 3rd is when the next X-men movie is due out. (official site)

X-men First Class is set during the 1960s,  and focuses on the relationship between Professor X and Magneto, as well as the origin of their groups, the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants.

I don’t know about… but I’m so freakin’ excited I might mutate into something soon if the Earth doesn’t turn fast enough to get to June 3rd!

I’ll be sure to have a collection of X-men wallpapers made from the movie. I already have over 150 X-men wallpapers for many monitor sizes on my site if you’d like some, with the images coming from the previous 4 X-men movies.

I also have over 200 printable 6×4 postcard sized photos of those X-men wallpapers to take your love of the X-men with you beyond your computer screen.

Also check out my X-men backgrounds for iPhones and Blackberries (as well as Palm, HTC and other smart phones).

I can’t wait, man! Can you???

p.s. What’s with the release date of June 3, 2011? 6.3.11 has 6+3 and 11 or 9/11.
